I recommend that you manually change the user and group IDs (UID & GID) prior
to upgrading the system.
On the old system:
usermod -g 1000 username
usermod -u 1000 username
chown -R username:username directory
chgrp -R username:username directory
for all of your directories.
Reboot and make sure everything is ok. I had to redo one or two of the
commands, for some reason, after rebooting. Maybe I didn't chown/chgrp -R
This worked perfectly for me when I migrated from Fedora 15 to Fedora 16.
I hope this is what you needed.
